Marco Valentino Suits? Any thoughts/experience? - Page 3

post #31 of 131
I've purchased a few suits from Jeff. I had them tailored for waist suppression and fixing the extra fabric at the back of the neck. I get many compliments when wearing it... even a top lawyer at a prestigious law firm gave praise... As someone else said – I can live with that.

Amazing value. Jeff is a pleasure to deal with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

He puts out a great product at a great price...

If his product isn't for you - c'est la vie

If it is... you just lucked out.

I received a Valentino suit from Jeff back in March before a cruise I was heading on. The suit is of fantastic quality and Jeff was great to deal with. I'm actually placing an order for 2 more in the next couple of days (although I may try 1 Baroni to test it out)...

If I normally wear a 38r corneliani cut, should I get the same in a Marco valentino or downsize?

Note of Clarification: you probably know this already, but "Marco Valentino" isn't the VALENTINO some appear to be thinking of. That Valentino is Valentino Garavani. There are LOTS of Valentino "one off" names that try to get the cache by confusion/comparison, but the designer Valentino has three lines for clothes: Valentino, Valentino ROMA, and Valentino R.E.D.. He also has a line of accessories, Valentino Garavani. Anyway, Marco Valentino suits might be just fine for what they are, but they definitely aren't "Valentino," which has a specific cut/styling (and absurdly high retail price!) to match. Anyway, not to hijack the thread, but just didn't want there to be confusion as the "VALENTINO" name is getting thrown around a lot.

Rach2jlc,

Why don't you try reading the thread before chiming in.

JeffT, Welcome to the forum. Nevertheless, jumping on with misplaced snark may not be a good start for you (especially considering that you might members may look to your place of business for a purchase). Had you been around SF longer, you'd know that actually READING the thread in question is generally not suggested (haha, j/k). Anyway, even given your long post on the labels on page two, just two posts above mine on page 3, somebody STILL used the word "Valentino" in reference to a Marco Valentino suit. So, I thought it best to clarify... again... and give further clarification on the labels that fall under the Valentino umbrella. Cheers.

Trying to justify your incorrect behavior by saying "hey newbie, respect a senior member" just makes you look like a jackass. You should stop while you're behind. And yes, I'm a newbie too.

WTF are you talking about? What was so "incorrect" about my behavior? I think you've COMPLETELY misread my post: All I did was add a post of clarification about the Valentino umbrella. Then, I made a "JOKE" (with the haha j/k at the end) saying "hey, we don't read posts around here." That's a joke... and the SMILEY at the end just added further emphasis of that. Welcome to the forum for you, too. It seems like you'll make lots of friends.

Since you are a "senior member", you should know that jumping in to a thread without reading the previous posts, only to explain something that was already made abundantly clear, can be seen as being "incorrect." Then to defend that behavior by patronizing other members (yes you were patronizing) spouting your senior status is doubly wrong. Then making a "joke" to tone down the harshness of your bahvior right afterwards is just very childish. And again, you make a demeaning comment based on my newbness on this board.

You're a definite winner! Congrats.

I've been on the net way longer than you and know better than to try to continue arguing with someone like you. Have a nice day, I will not be responding to any of your comments on this thread.

Simmer down, fella, simmer down.

If I was offensive, apologies. I don't think I was, but hey, we read in a post what we want to read. The world is full of too many legitimate issues warranting our ire and our indignation, but I agree with you that THIS isn't one of them.

As such, good day and regards!

I'm very surprised at your apology. I opened this thread expecting retaliation and was not expecting this.
I in turn also apologize for my harsh reaction. It is very rare for one side to aplogize first on the net, and by doing so, you reveal yourself to be a true gentleman.

Good day to you as well!

Thanks, crpz32. To me, the net should ALWAYS be fun and relaxing, not something that gets us angry. So, when we post well, it's good to be congratulated. If, however, we make a mistake, screw up, or are unclear in establishing the purpose of our message, it's best simply to stand up and say so. In this case, I think I was both unclear and patronizing, which really wasn't my intention (rather, I was just trying to be a little sarcastic.)

Anyway, we've derailed the thread enough from its original purpose about MARCO Valentino, so I'm glad we could get things cleared up and I look forward to our next chat on another thread (where hopefully we'll agree right out of the gate!!) Cheers!

I just received one in 36R charcoal, 2B, SB, double vents. I like it a lot, but want to try the 36S. It fits very similarly to my Gritti (Zegna outlet).

Rach, I think it's your icon. It looks like your screaming at everyone.

Yeah, the snakes in the hair tend to take it a little over the top.
